Grecia Manrique, a member of the "community" honoring Steve Gregory, says that she wants to knit neck straps. Is it a good idea or a bad idea?

Well, my first though would be no. However, it would really depend on the material used! Wool wouldn't be a good idea IMO. I think a knitted strap would be quite springy.

I suppose it would okay if you wanted to put some bounce into a given riff :w00t:

Bad idea probably. I would expect them to stretch/spring too much. Knitted mouthpieces and/or neck pouches, though, could be nice.

Also, the kintted neck straps would cut into your neck, leaving little knitted patterns in your skin. I think the material of a neck-strap needs to be smooth.

I could see mouthpiece bags and crook bags catching on, though.

I think Sunray is just trying to avoid doing the laundry.
